Laser Safety: Understanding Medical Lasers and IPL is a fully online course, allowing you to learn about the principles of laser safety at your own pace. This course will cover a brief introduction to medical lasers and IPL machines and their associated treatment use. At the end of the course you will be equipped with the knowledge to safeguard yourself and your patients when it comes to handling IPL/medical lasers in your practice.

We do recommend that you complete the courses in the Skin Foundations Online Program before embarking on this module in order to maximise your learning. It is also important to familiarise yourself with the content of this course first prior to moving on to other laser and IPL modules.
